  1. This shawl was an exciting exploration for me. Turning a pretty lace stitch pattern into a top down shaped triangular shawl involves figuring out how to make a single increase on either side and a double increase down the center. My goal was to make it look seamless and effortless, without compromising the beauty of the design. For an edging, I created a larger scale of the 3petal floral motif. Make sure to block each petal separately for a perfectly framed, finished shawl. The shawl has a 4 row repeat that is easy to memorize once you get established. Materials: (1) skein Be So Fine Yarn; 10

  5. I’m always on the lookout for ways to make quick, but thoughtful and beautiful, handmade gifts. Inspired by the bubble shape of these glass vases, I created beautiful lace crochet covers and crocheted them right onto the vases! The construction style is very similar to top down seamless hats, and I offer the patterns in multiple sizes. You could starch or glue your lace to your vases, but I used a decrease round at the end to crochet them securely to the vases! This pattern includes instructions for 4 stitch pattern designs, and in 3 sizes: 4”, 5.5” and 8” bubble vases. Be sure to check out m

  7. Crocheted from the top down in an easy to memorize increasing repeat, this lace shawl is made in one continuous piece of yarn and only one large skein -- 2 ends to weave in! The edging is worked seamlessly onto the last row of the shawl in a beautiful design that blends very well with the berry lace shawl pattern. The berry motif is part of the pineapple family of stitch patterns and is gorgeous in a top down increasing shawl, as the new pattern motif repeats starburst out from the beginning. A blocking pictorial (step-by-step picture tutorial) is at the end of the pattern, teaching you all y
